ALMENARA DE ADAJA Valladolid, Spain.

In the vicinity are the remains of a large Roman villa, now in course of excavation, with cubicula built about a rectangular enclosure. Of the 1500 m thus far uncovered, 400 were adorned with mosaics, implying a luxurious dwelling based on important agricultural activity. The mosaics are geometric and floral, and no furnishings have survived. The villa was abandoned before the 5th c. invasions.
